If the 6cly are as finiky about the valves as 4cly are then I hate to break this to you, but you get almost no room for valve adjustments in these cars. The engines are made to run one way... I do not remember the tolerance off hand that our engines have, but it is almost nill. However, should you feel that you need to do this, good luck to you and I hope some one can help you more than I.
Should you mean, replacing the valves or valve springs this is another matter entirely that can be done. Howewver, it requires either a camshaft tool, or you to trust your ability with handling parts that would cost you an arm and a leg to replace. And could very well just end up replacing your engine. It requires removing the cam shaft. And if it does not go back in exactly as it should, bye bye engine.
There is a way to do it with out the camshaft tool, but int he interests of not being the cause of you possibly breaking your engine, I will refrain from giving the instructions. Also having never done the procedure myself or seen it done, I could not give you all of the tips and tricks involved with doing it.
